A family of fifth-order iterative methods is proposed for solving nonlinear equations using the weight function technique. This family offers flexibility through its structure and the choice of weight functions, resulting in a wide range of new specific schemes. It is demonstrated that this proposed family includes several well-known and recent methods as special cases. In addition, several new particular methods are designed to achieve better results than existing methods of the same type. Convergence analysis is conducted, and numerical examples in both real and complex domains are provided for several specific schemes within the proposed family. Comparisons between the existing methods within this family and the newly introduced methods generally indicate improved performance among the new members. Notably, the study of complex dynamics and basins of attraction reveals that our new specific schemes have broader sets of initial points that lead to convergence.
